Very poor course condition
Course layout has some potential, but the course is in terrible shape and needs a lot of love. The front nine was ok, but all of the greens (front and back) were like shag carpet on top of concrete in that they were very firm and didn't hold well, yet somehow rolled very slow and untrue with a lot of irregularities making them difficult to read. The cups weren't cut straight on the majority of greens, and the cheap plastic ring at the top of cup was often sticking out of the cup. The greens on the back nine were even worse in that the periphery of the greens were horribly cracked and there were still aeration tracks throughout the greens (in the middle of July). The fairways were the worst I've seen, a mix of some live grass, a lot of dead grass, and a lot of no grass/mud/hardpan. Good shots were frequently punished, good putts didn't go anywhere or we're knocked offline by random patches of thick grass or dead green. The only upside to this course was the friendly staff. I can't recommend this course and will not be going back.
This course continues to improve. The greens are much nicer this year and the fairways are growing in nicely. They are continuing to rebuild the sand traps, remove dead trees, and fix the drainage issues. There are lots of low spots that can be soft due to the creek that cuts through the course, but they are able to maintain it well. Pace of play is rarely an issue and it's one of the few courses that is under $40 on a weekend. Darren and his staff are great.
Play here couple times a year. Nice staff, they seem to be updating course. There were a few rough areas ... bunkers kinda bad. But still a fun course green were nice.
Fun, improved track.
Greens in great shape. Staff is very nice.
It's sad what happened to this course
I grew up playing this course. It was never high end but I liked the layout and it was decently maintained. It became run down a few years ago. The new owners have had 2 years with it and it is even worse. The fairways were brown with many dead spots. The ponds were overgrown with algae. The only worker at the course was the starter, not one maintenance person was there. Weeds were out of control. Then they actually sent out 2 groups of elderly foursomes in front of us as we turned on the back 9. It saddens me that I will never play here again. Definitely stay away.
Second time I've played this course. For the money it can't be beat in the Akron/Medina area. I booked a 4:39 tee time and didn't hit a single group in front of me, and was playing solo so I was moving quick. Not the best conditions, but I'll keep coming back. Front 9 wide open, back is tight but it's fun.
I hate to give it a bad review
Course was not in good shape. Narrow fairways, poor bunkers, numerous dirt patches on the fairways, and greens that were often elevated for no good reason. Plus, some slow play which is detrimental when you get in a groove.
One of the few pluses was the staff. Very courteous and I wish I could compare the course with their professionalism. I just wouldn't recommend this place to any serious golfer.
This course is so different once it dries up a bit. They continue to improve and work on their issues. The ball runs so much out here, and on some greens you can probably take a club less as the ball will ROLL. Lots of fun and the back 9 is a real test. Pace of play is usually not an issue and they run lots of specials through their website. Go check it out. Darren and his staff are the best.
Played here years ago when it was Brunswick Hills, it was always in bad shape. Gave it another try and had the same result, fairways brown and bare, traps horrible, greens would not hold hat to hit every shot short and hope it didn't roll off the back. Felt like King Kong because the ball just kept running. Learned my lesson won't come back. Only good thing is the front is wide open and the back had a little character.
The rain has finally stopped and the course has dried out. Much more enjoyable now. Lots of roll on drives. The greens a pretty firm too, so play for the front (they haven't been able to top dress yet). They are spongy a bit though so chips settle and they roll on the slow side, kind of an odd combination, but it works. Pace of play is never a problem at 6:30 AM. They continue to do work and improve the course. Go check it out.
Well maintained. Cart patches need work though. Nice easy course for a fun/practice round. Will come back. Staff very friendly.
I play this course quite often. Conditions continue to improve. It has been easy to see the improvements since I started playing here 3 years ago. The course overall is in good shape, although earlier in the year the wet and cold temps delayed mowing and some of the low spots in the back 9 suffered. The front is open, except for a creek/ponds that come into play on 7 & 9. The back is very tight and winds through the same creek valley, but it is in play on 12-15 and 18. Their turtle-back greens are kept on the slow side, but they roll true. They are working on drainage and have patched some of the bigger ruts in the cart paths. All the sand traps are under repair, some being removed, some rebuilt. Pace of play isn't an issue teeing off at 6:30 AM.
Front 9 - Didn't lose a ball!
Feel free to spray it all around on the front 9 cause it's fairly open. Trouble on the right on 2 or 3 holes but most of the holes border each other and some good trees to provide blockage so you aren't in harms way.
The walk was thoroughly enjoyed with the music going and my game pretty good as well. i was surprised I had to drive 30 minutes from hotel to get to course as no other course had tee times after 4:00pm, good job Cossett Creek on getting me to come out by just posting tee times when you are open. Check out my pic of the tree colors, awesome!
The only knock I had was some hard pan turf conditions on fairway and round area around the greens. Tees had some bare spots but you are teeing it up, who cares right? Greens were punched about 10 days I'd guess and they were rolling well but a little fuzzy. but I played at 5:30pm so I expected them to be slow. they were in good shape, but I had 4 to 6 shots from fairway or around the green on a very tight dirt lie. For a hack, like me, I turn into Captain Skully or Sir Chunks-a-lot but all good. Bunkers needed some attention like a good raking and a de-weeding.
I'd go back and heard the back 9 is more cut thru the woods so bring your straight driver.
Nothing special about this course, I thought there was a good mixture of water hazards. Would play again.
Won't be back
So, we have played this coarse a couple of times now and it just gets worse and worse. When we arrived, the clubhouse staff was rude. Coarse condition and layout are fairly good but the fairways are cut to close to each other in many locations. I had 2 drives fade off, barely on to the next hole rough, but by the time I get to it, it's missing. The people who play here had no etticate or ability to play a bigger coarse. We left after 9 holes and will not return.
Cossett Creek, July 2016
A nice layout, pretty well-maintained. Rough was pretty burned out but it's been very hot and dry. Fairways could be better but not bad at all. Greens were in good shape but a little slow and hard to read. Didn't interact much with staff but they seemed friendly enough. Very small clubhouse. Did not eat or drink. Second time playing course.
I play out here pretty often and this is the best this course has looked in years. The ownership is really invested in the course and one can see the work being done. The greens hold well and roll true, but they are on the slower side, which is intentional as they are crowned and no one wants to have putts roll off the green. The first 6 holes the ball can be sprayed anywhere but a creek comes in at 7 & 9 and the whole back runs through a wooded valley. Shot selection is key to survive the back. They are often running promotions so check the website before booking a time.
A real steal
Reading some of the reviews, and considering the price, I was skeptical, but decided to give this course a try. I was pleasantly surprised that the course was in great shape, and the back 9 really tested your skills. Lots of dog legs made sure you were taking the right angles, and when you didn't, you could pay for it. Look forward to playing it again.
Fun course to play. Back 9 very challenging. Will definitely return.
Winter Golf - Good Option
Good course in fairly decent shape ( a couple of rough greens but overall not bad). Tight course with hills on the back 9 with challenging greens. Will have to try it again when the weather is a little warmer.
